New 9m kite

Postby TomW » Mon Jun 05, 2017 11:06 pm

I'm getting into foiling more, but also take my surfboard out regularly. Once in a blue moon and on travels I might take out my TT.
My quiver of kites is Core xr3 12m, North Mono 12, 2010 RRD Obsession 9, North Mono 7.
I need to replace the RRD due to worn out plastic parts.

My choices :
1. 2016 North Mono 9 ( 815€)
2. 2017 North Neo 9 ( 1140€)
3. Storm Voyager 9 ( 750€)
4. Storm Voyager 5 and 9 (1240€)

I'm wondering if Neo will work good in light winds, does it backstall?
Anyone know about Voyager bar pressure and power delivery? Stability?

It will back-stall... beautifully. That's what surf kites are design for, back stalling in a nice and predictable way that you can recover. I find my surf kite has a lot more feel when it's going to back-stall than my all round kites.
